The Value Of Going Beyond Monolingual
Close to half the people on Earth can speak more than one language. The percentage (43) is actually higher than the percentage of people who speak only one language (40).
But in this country, only about a fifth of the population is bilingual, and foreign-language programs are often the targets of budget cuts in schools and colleges.
That troubles foreign-language learners at Southern Oregon University, who want to see more support, not less. Students Coco Palacios, Micah Mills, Orianna Alter and Claire Foster-Dow are our guests.
